We are proud to announce that the Country Life team has achieved a perfect 5 Star rating in every component of the CMS Nursing Home Comparison rating system. There are only three providers in the Salt Lake area that have a perfect CMS 5 star rating in every category (Country Life, Highland Care Center, and Aspen Ridge West).
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS) created the Nursing Home Compare Five-Star Quality Rating System for patients, families, employees, and others to easily compare characteristics of skilled nursing facilities and rehabilitation providers. The publicly available CMS Nursing Home Compare web site enables head to head comparisons of the providers in a selected geographical area. The Nursing Home Compare rating system assigns an overall rating of between one and five stars. Five star providers are considered to have quality outcomes that are much above average. Nursing homes with one star rating are considered to be preforming below average. These ratings change with the addition of new information but also have a look-back period of three years to incorporate some historical context and consistency. While no rating system is perfect the CMS Five Star Rating system has become the gold standard for nursing home comparisons.
We would like to thank everyone on our team who has helped us make this 5 Star Rating possible.
